Amazing babies....

There seems to be a lot of stories in the news recently about amazing babies and their mothers who stand by against all hope, as well as some rare multiple births.

One mother delayed her chemotherapy treatment when she was told 4 days after she found out she was pregnant that she was diagnosed with leukemia. She later gave birth to healthy identical twin boys, and is currently in remission.

Another baby was born 3 months premature, weighing only 11 ounces, delivering her early because her mother was diagnosed with high blood pressure and diabetes and the doctors didn't want to pose further risk to Dakota's health or survival.

Here, one mother gave birth to very rare identical female quadruplets, giving them names to correspond with their original designation as babies A, B, C, and D: Adele, Bonnie, Chloe, and Daphne.

Lastly, this family, after already having 2 year old identical twin girls, have a set of naturally conceived identical triplet boys. A 1:15,000,000 chance of having two sets of identical babies, with one set being triplets. Wow!

Congratulations to these courageous mothers and their (multiple) bundles of joy!

P.S. Here is a convention for multiples (triplets and quadruplets) in Washington that some of these families can attend!

Great! They can make up for my lack of 'being fruitful and multiplying...'
